A novel way for jobseekers to find a role in Home Care

Jobseekers looking for a rewarding role supporting seniors to live independently have the chance to meet a range of employers in the one location – and apply for a role on the spot – at events being held in February and March 2024. 

Mt Druitt will be the location of an event tomorrow, Thursday 15 February, with others to be held in St Marys, Parramatta and Blacktown.

SydWest Multicultural Services CEO Elfa Moraitakis said the Employment Accelerator events give people with a desire to improve the quality of people’s lives the chance to jump start their career in the Home Care sector. 

“With a skills shortage in Aged Care, it’s exciting to be involved in an initiative like Employment Accelerator to help bring more people into the sector,” Ms Moraitakis said. 

“The Employment Accelerator event is a unique opportunity to bring Home Care employers together with potential employees in the one spot, reducing what might otherwise be a lengthy application process. 

“Candidates have the chance to speak to a range of possible employers and may land a job on the spot if they’re the right match. 

“Employers can meet a pool of candidates in person in a relatively short time and discuss the benefits of the career and working with them.” 

SydWest Multicultural Services held the first Employment Accelerator (Home Care) event at its Blacktown premises at the end of January, attracting nearly 40 candidates. 

Two more events dedicated to Home Care will be held this month, with the March events opened up to a range of other industries including Health and Disability, Transport and Logistics, Construction, Hospitality and Cleaning. 

Anyone looking for a job can attend an Employment Accelerator event. You will need to register for a free ticket.
